Today, I am here with a DIY recipe of a refreshing and soothing facial mist. Thanks to summer, we always need and want something soothing and calming for our skin. This mist is quite easy and fun to make. The ingredients used in this facial mist are hydrating, moisturising, oil-controlling and healing at the same time. Hence, this mist is perfect for every skin type. So, let’s read on.
Ingredients and their benefits:
⦁ Chamomile tea
Chamomile tea is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is a great herb for sensitive skin. It efficiently soothes and calms the skin and provides a cooling effect. Chamomile also heals the skin. It cleanses and moisturises the skin very well. Chamomile also lightens dark spots and scars as it bleaches them naturally. Apart from this, it is quite potent in fighting acne and keeping them at bay. The antioxidants present in chamomile are helpful in protecting the skin from harmful free radicals.
⦁ Aloe vera gel
Aloe vera gel is widely used in many skin care products. You can either use fresh aloe vera gel or buy one from the market. Aloe vera keeps your skin moisturised as it retains water in your skin. It will not make your skin feel greasy; instead, it will make it plump and soft. Aloe vera gel has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties because of which it helps in treating mild acne and their scars. It helps in lightening the skin tone and improves the texture as well. If your skin is well hydrated and moisturised, then it reduces the chances of premature ageing as well.
⦁ Rose water
Rose water will help in maintaining the pH level of the skin. It has antibacterial properties which help in treating acne. It hydrates the skin while making it refreshed, smooth and radiant. Aside from this, rose water helps in reducing scars. It tones the skin very efficiently and smoothes out the texture.
⦁ Essential oil
I used tea tree essential oil in this facial mist. Tea tree oil is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Hence, it helps combat acne and also reduces blemishes.
Steep two bags of chamomile tea in half cup of warm water for 20 minutes. Then, let it cool down.
Add one tablespoon of aloe vera gel to the brewed chamomile tea.
Add 8-10 drops of essential oil. I used tea tree essential oil because I have acne-prone skin. You can choose an essential oil according to your skin type and need.
Pour the mixture in a spritz bottle and give it a good shake.
Now fill the rest of the bottle with rose water and shake it to mix all the ingredients well.
⦁ Always shake the bottle well before use.
⦁ Always keep it refrigerated to maintain its freshness as chamomile tea is more vulnerable to decomposition.
⦁ Use this facial mist within a week or two of preparation. Try to avoid making it in bulk.
⦁ Always do a patch test as some people can be allergic to chamomile.
